Ok, let's change the mood. Here is some stuff for my 1981 Supergoose build. Thanks AussieFloval for the tuffs and snakebelly tires!



Martin
Mr.BMX
Nice clean tuffs, very nice ;-)
AndyDiamond
Cool man.
You running a chain ring on each side?
LOL


I can't remember if I posted this already but here's the progress on my Redline MXIII...
Just need to get my wheels back from being built.

dugga
that's a nice RL - I always loved the red and white redlines. What are you doing with the pedals?
www.martin-bike.com
Nice! That was my first race bike as a kid, but a chrome version. That's definitely on my list.

I had an Elina lightening bolt seat on my original bike. They use to be rare as until the Hong Kong mafia got their hands on a huge stash. They're going for just $70 now.
prosight
so you are the one that got AussieFloval tuff...they were a very nice set to...
AndyDiamond
The pedals are used but nice DXs.
The end caps are pretty good - they just need a clean up.
I have some NOS MKS pedals in red but the DXs look kinda cool, even though they are not NOS.

Most of the rest of the bike is NOS apart from the V-bars.
They are Redline Vs but they are pretty banged-up on the cross bar. They'll be covered by a pad.

I also stuffed-up the placement of the fork decal you see in the pic - I had it on upside down and had to pull it off and re-apply. Fine for pics but not 100%

I was pretty happy to get that DiaCompe lever and the Oakley .5s.

This frame and fork was given to me by Steve88 - it was pretty poked so this is a nice little 'salvage job'.

The wheels are red Ukai box (from Waza) and SunTour LF hubs, black fat/skinny Cheng Shins (awesome Comp III copies).

I have some beat up Redline vinyl pads to put on there too.
AndyDiamond
Marty - yeah the Hong Kong boys have really got the market for Elina seats into shape.

Still, if you want blue....

The Redline has a NOS black Kashimax Aero that I had 'laying around' that I though could be put to good use.

The frame and fork originally came with a red Elina Redline seat which someone else has - I'd like to get it back and put it on this (even though it's pretty used).
This also came with a Redline fluted posted which is cleaned up and used on this build and a Redline Brute stem.
The stem was faded pink so I caustic soda'd it and put it on my GHP.
That is just a standard SunTour stem on this build.

dugga
You mean the hong kong mafia is now trafficking BMX parts? Try smuggling a few kilos of elina seats through customs rammed up your back passage - ouch!
dugga
or even worse - hutch pedals
www.martin-bike.com
Chris, was that supposed to be a secret??? I still want your Robinson! LOL

Dugga6, um . . . no! I don't mean that dude! LOL

Andy, ozdirtboy found this blue Elina in a bike shop in Sydney. Luckily he didn't need it. It's going on my chrome/blue Kuwahara build.



Martin
AndyDiamond
LOL - how about smuggling cruiser bars - lol

Nice seat mate - that KZ1 is going to look great!
prosight
nice seat..

I need a Quad frame.....hint hint
prosight
Im building a Quad around this stuff i all so have a set of unstamped landing gear's on there way (thanks Mr.BMX)
I think it is not a bad start...oh thanks Andy for letting me bid on the seat..lol
www.martin-bike.com
Chris, if you still need a frame by the time I get back to Sydney on 17-Dec, I think I know where I can find one . . .
AndyDiamond
Mate - I didn't even see that seat - lol


I don't have a Quad frame for sale but you could bid on a photo of one if you like - lol
www.martin-bike.com
Chris, I think you have a fixation on coloured tires like I have a fixation on number plates. LOL
prosight
Thanks Martin Let me know about this frame im looking for a 1983 one
dugga
my quad's not for sale.....
dugga
ooopppssss..... sorry big picture
www.martin-bike.com
Chris, will do.

Is anybody here into expert size frames? I have a Profile and a Santa Anna GT for sale. Both are chrome.

Martin
dugga
Martin, do you know the top tube difference between the pro and expert size GT? thanks
prosight
post pic's of them and will let you know Martin
www.martin-bike.com
Yes, GT pro is 18.5" from centre of the head tube to centre of the seat tube. Expert is 17.5". Here's my expert built up - original chrome and decals in awesome condition:



Martin
www.martin-bike.com
Santa Anna GT has a 1983 serial number, very clean dropouts and also has a 1982 Nora Cup decal on the seat tube.
prosight
I think im GT PRO is 18 1/2inch c to c

dugga
thanks martin, looks real nice
www.martin-bike.com
No worries dugga6.

I'm hoarding too much stuff and I don't even get to enjoy it being so far away. I'll be sure to offer anything I let go of here first.

Chris, now I want your Robinson and your GT (if it's chrome). I have another black one in the works but can't find the black backed Santa Anna decals - been looking for over 1.5 years!!!
AndyDiamond
very nice GT there mate
prosight
Dugga tell us all about your quad were did you get it? how long have you had it? what did it cost you? (you do not have to tell but id like to know as im looking for one)
prosight
I have a GT PRO f/f for sale but it is not chrome its been painted the same blue as my one at the show the guy that painted im gt said ill do the 2 for you but it had to be the same color...so ill put stickers on it and sell it

[ November 10, 2005, 08:43 PM: Message edited by: prosight ]
velocidad
nice pics you guys, but not of all of us have adsl/cable!
www.martin-bike.com
Chris, do you know if it can it be chromed? Some frames can be painted but are too far gone for chroming.
AndyDiamond
Martin - did you try that guy for thr black GT decals I sent you the address for?


I'll post some pics of my 84 GT Pro - it's been 'finished off' now so due for some nice new pics.

Chris - I recently hooked up my mate Steve88 with a 1983 Reynolds Quad. It is painted the same colour as your tan Ripper and has black unstamped Landing Gear with tan LG decals.

Completey repainted - almost NOS condition.

It's real cool but not built up yet.

I managed to get it for $300 US including a 3-piece BB and Hatta headset included.
prosight
I would say NO but im no chromer and i would not like you to get it and then you can not chrome it....
www.martin-bike.com
Andy, yes I tried him. He's all out and so is everybody else.

Chris, understand, either would I! Thanks.
prosight
The Tan PK was NOT mine its Peter from QLD the black PK was mine
dugga
chris, i bought my quad on pommy e-bay about 4 months ago. Frame, fork and original padset cost me GBP 200. Took about 8 weeks to arrive. They come up on uk ebay quite often - usually the same ones cause they set the reserve too high. Alans have had a red one for months at GDP 350. There have been a few for sale in the US but getting them shipped is a nightmare. I've been chasing a looptail quad but I've given up - the last one I saw went for US $1000
Mr.BMX
Boys :
As long as you prepare/repair the frame, ANY frame can be chromed !
There's nothing impossible about filling holes or rust bites then smoothing over ready for chroming.


Martinbike :
Black-backed GT decals ??????
BITD they were CLEAR backed, as used on Greg Hills Blue GT Pro F+F.


Chris:
DCBMX Has a quad frame and or quad F+F on the bay now.

;-)
www.martin-bike.com
Don't give up dugga! Stay with the force . . .
www.martin-bike.com
Marty, my chromer said it couldn't be done. Will try another guy. Thanks!

Yes, black backed - here's part of the 1983 GT catalog:



Martin
www.martin-bike.com
I got the info from a reliable source that these decals are black backed and not clear backed.

Although looking at that pic from the catalog now, doesn't seem to have the white lettering as with the repros. Hhhmmmm, maybe they are clear backed and I can finish this damn build!!!

Martin
prosight
I think they would have been clear so they did not have to make stickers for every color bike
www.martin-bike.com
Huh??? Posted twice - weird.

I think that catalog pic may be from 84.

Hey Chris, can you post pics of your blue GT clearly showing the decals please? Thanks
Mr.BMX
Strange, as i currently have clear ones here, and have only ever known of chrome/clear backed ones BITD......
I wouldnt have thought GT would make such small runs of blue, black and other colours for their limited colour frame range, which is more than likely the reason the went with CLEAR....


As for your chromer, he's an idiot !!!!!! ;-)
AndyDiamond
The Quads for sale in UK are total rip-offs.

£300+ is just someone's idea of a joke.

For a 1983+ Reynoylds Quad in NOS or retsored condition you should being paying no more than $350 USD.

Looptail Quads are a differrent story altogether and yes, $1000 US is not uncommon.

As far as shipping goes - I'd rather have stuff shipped from the US - it's way cheaper and faster.

The Quad cost a tad under $70US to ship here and got here in 4 days.

UK shipping is expensive and can be nightmare for larger items.


DC (Darren Chan) is a straight-up seller with the best prices and the best shipping prices on the planet.
You can't go wrong with getting something from him.
Mr.BMX
Yep, DC is ace :-)
AndyDiamond
GT decals - yeah, clear was a 1984 thing.

They were all chrome-backed up til then.
The retail frame colours up to 83 were chrome, red, blue and black.
All had the chrome backed decals.

I've seen a couple of black pre-84 GT builds with seemingly clear backed decals but I know Randy did some with black backing for black frames.
prosight
Mr.BMX are you going to sell/Trade me your 83 quad when you get your looptail quad
